| You felt like you were in the Palladium
One word describes this viewing of the King and I at the London Palladium: Scrumptious.

I was one of a few 100 almost-theatre-goers in my local cinema. Having booked early, we were slap bang in the middle of the screening, at eye level with the eyes of the actors and it was fantastic.

All the actors were on top-form, the orchestra played every note beautifully, the choreography was gorgeous, the lighting was inspiring and the cameras were top-quality.

The filming took place as if you were in the audience. As it was a live performance in front of real paying theatre-goers there were no cameras swooshing around on stage, it was all as un-obstructive as possible and it created a feeling of being in the audience in all the best spots to capture every moment.

Only two qualms: sometimes - when the actors were moving at a quick rate - there was some blurring on the screen. However, in the still moments, you could see every pore on the actor's body. Second, in the theatre, an actor will usually have to be over the top in their mannerisms, because the cameras were zoomed in, these looked a bit 'weird'.

Still, this is and will be a great production. I genuinely hope it comes out on DVD, it is already the biggest filmed theatre show of 2018, please bring it out!
